Join the Archbishops of Dublin to Walk the Way of the Cross on Good Friday
The Good Friday Walk of Witness returns to Dublin City Centre during Holy Week 2022. For the first time since 2019 all are welcome to join the Archbishops of Dublin, Archbishop Michael Jackson and Archbishop Dermot Farrell, as they carry the cross from Christ Church Cathedral to St Mary’s Pro–Cathedral.
The Walk of Witness begins in Christ Church Cathedral at 7pm with a short time of prayer and reflection with the two Archbishops. They will then lead participants from the cathedral, down Dame Street to College Green and Westmoreland Street to O’Connell Street before turning down Talbot Street towards St Mary’s Pro–Cathedral where there will also be a short service.
Archbishop Michael Jackson has encouraged people to join him and Archbishop Farrell.
“The Good Friday Walk of Witness from Christ Church Cathedral to St Mary’s Pro–Cathedral is an annual opportunity for people in Dublin to walk the Way of The Cross. In recent years, because of Covid 19, this has been greatly reduced in scope. This year both Archbishop Farrell and I will lead this walk from one cathedral to another,” he commented.
“With the help of the Gardai all are safe literally to walk the road of witness, faith and compassion. With so many Ukrainian people terrorised and displaced, participating in this year’s walk is a way of showing our solidarity with everyone who is dispossessed and marginalised. These were, after all, the people whose company Jesus enjoyed and with whom he ate. I invite you to find your walking shoes and to join us on Good Friday at 7pm, starting in Christ Church Cathedral. You will be very welcome,” the Archbishop added.
